I have been working at DuPont

Pros

Work life balance is excellent. Core values are safety, respect for others. Lots of opportunity for advancement. People are respectful.

Cons

Corporate environment, difficult to get things done quickly. Employees are now doing jobs of 3 employees. Managers and employees are so multi-task oriented that projects are not done well with enough attention to detail.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let employees focus on fewer projects, instead of being multi-task oriented. Overall, Dupont is a great place to work. Work / life balance is excellent.

    Pros

    Excellent ethics and integrity go through the company, underlined by core values especially safety. Good work-life balance though getting tougher as we are leaner, common across corporations these days.

    Cons

    Can be slow/difficult to drive change. The strength is working with teams and getting input on change, but some things have to be driven to be competitive. Need to ensure we keep valuing the technologies and experts who helped make the company what it is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to remember to keep developing people even as competition has intensified. Fewer development opportunities than in the past and these are needed for the long term.

    Pros

    Stability, good work life balance, respect for people is a core value and they back it up. Trying to be a very green and enviromentally responsible company, Average salary and health care, can find lots of better options though, great 401k matching (9%) but no more pension.

    Cons

    Poor balancing of work load to resources, tough place to get fired from (not a good thing, too many poor performers), current CEO very cost sensitive (i.e. cheap), asked employees to take up to 2 weeks of unpaid vacation in 2009 when the company made $2B+ profit. No perks of working for a large company like travel, fitness facilities, ability to attend training & conferences, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why do you continue to fail to retain young talent when you face a US work force with an average age in their 50's?
